Disney Cruise Line Character Meet and Greets

Disney Cruise Line offers many great opportunities to meet characters, and this starts before ever stepping foot on the ship! While waiting in the port for embarkation, you will get to meet one character there. For this particular cruise, we were able to meet Pluto in Port Canaveral.

Once you are on the ship, the best way to know when and where to meet all the characters is by using the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App. This will list every character meet and greet, both time and location. Be sure to download this to your phone prior to getting on the ship, and it will begin to work once you are onboard!

If you want to meet Anna & Elsa, or any of the other princesses, you NEED to reserve this when you do your online check in. The availability to meet these characters are limited, due to their popularity. IF you are unable to reserve a meet and greet for them during online check in, be sure to visit the Port Adventures desk as soon as you board the ship, as they may have a few available times for you.

We were able to snag reservations for both the Anna & Elsa and the princess meet and greet! We did them back to back, with meeting A&E first. Their meet and greet was set up in the restaurant Animators Palate. They transformed the restaurant to appear as though you are walking into frozen Arendale!

Just after meeting the ice queen and princess, we went strait to the princess gathering which was located in the Atrium. (NOTE: locations of the meet and greets are subject to change, always follow the Navigator for the most up to date times and locations!) What a beautiful location to meet the princesses! I have 2 girls, my oldest loves Snow White, and my youngest is obsessed with Belle. When I say obsessed, I mean it. We have a dog AND a fish, both named Belle!! Luckily, both Belle and Snow White were at this meet and greet!

even her Belle doll joined us!

We also attended the See Ya Real Soon Party, which was in the Atrium on the day before arriving back to Port Canaveral. It was a cute show with the opportunity to also meet each of the characters. There are two of these Parties, one in the afternoon, and one late at night. The afternoon party was FAR less crowded than the late night party, just FYI.

we already had pictures with Pluto, so we decided to bypass him this time

We were leaving the pool, and guess who we ran into? Please excuse the blurry camera, it still had salt on the lens from being on the beach!

getting to see Belle twice on one cruise = one happy girl!

My girls have always been big fans of Stitch as well, so of course we had to spend a little time with him!

Stitch is always so much fun! He played with the girls for a while, so I decided to catch a little video of him playing hide and seek with them!

There are so many other chances to meet with characters, but these are just a few of the ones we saw! Some of the many others include Chip n’ Dale, Rapunzel, Tiana, Captain Hook and Mr. Smee, Doc Mcstuffins, Princess Sofia and many more! Remember, if you would like free, concierge level travel planning, contact us for your next cruise! We also offer onboard credits as a gift for booking with us!
